Alejandro Gómez-Arias: Loves is All
Honey, let's do it in front of Microsoft.
(I'm also interested in how the skeletal tracking worked. This probably wasn't one of the official test scenarios.)
There's no skeleton tracking there. Its just a point cloud that's been triangulated and texturemapped.
Making a skeleton tracker work for two people, uh, interacting would be Quite Difficult, but you coudl drop them a line and vounteer your services for a few million frames of training data?
I thought it was captured on a Kinect, which does skeleton tracking on its IR dataset and which I assumed failed in hilarious ways, ways in which I am at least as interested in seeing as the actual video. I was assuming that it was a Kinect since our host is known to walk circles around Microsoft for personal reasons and if he mentions a Microsoft product then it's probably on topic.
Also I can click links and read.
The Kinect is just a depth camera... it returns a point cloud which connected hardware can do stuff with. Skeleton tracking is a separate process which is done on the host PC/console, and wasn't used here at all.
Somewhat upset to discover that the everything2 article on 'synthetic hyperpornography' seems to have disappeared some time over the last ten years.
